Saraya Says Jon Moxley Helped Her With Her Promos In AEW

Saraya has credited Jon Moxley with helping her elevate her promo work in AEW.

Saraya recently spoke with Izzy On Sports, and she cited the IWGP World Heavyweight Champion as the person who helped her a lot with her promos. (H/t Andrew Thompson of POST Wrestling for the transcription). She revealed that he told her to “stop trying to be a character” and to be more real.

“Jon Moxley actually helped me a lot,” Saraya said. “One of my best friends is Renee [Paquette], [so] I’m friends with the hubby, too. He was one of the catalysts of getting me over to AEW as well. He was on the phone with me and stuff like that.”

“With the promos, since I s*** the bed the first time, I was just like, ‘I just need help I don’t feel confident in myself.’ He was just like, so, that promo with me and Britt [Baker] where I’m being real. I’m talking about real-life stuff, like yeah, I am sober, yeah, I was a mess. Yes, the world saw my tapes go on the friggin’ internet from when I was 19, just all the struggles that I went through for that year and a half.”

“I was being real, he was telling me I had to be real. He was just like, ‘That’s the perfect promo. Stop trying to be a character right now and just speak your truth’ kind of thing. He was helping me with that kind of stuff. He really, really did help me, it made me come out of my shell, and made me feel way more comfortable.”
